Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy
The Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy is a 5-year competency based program. This program resulted due to the paradigm shift in pharmacy practice from being drug-centered to patient-centered, which emphasizes the specific health care roles of the pharmacist, increasing evidences of drug therapy problems and the development of international, regional and local standards of competency for the pharmacy profession.
The additional requirement of one (1) year is necessary to prepare the students for new competencies needed, including internship, and to comply with the agreement among ASEAN and Western Pacific countries to adopt a minimum of four (4) years for professional courses to ensure acquisition of minimum entry level competencies for pharmacists.
